3D Printhuset Breaks Ground on 3D Printed Building in Copenhagen

By now, there have been many 3D printed houses and other buildings appearing across the world, but you may have noticed one thing about them: they tend to be constructed in the same areas, such as China and Dubai. There hasn’t been much in the way of 3D printed construction in Europe, at least not […]

US Army 3D Prints Barracks From Locally Sourced Concrete

We’ve been hearing a lot about the US military’s use of 3D printing lately. The Army just released a new report on its use of 3D printing, and just today we learned about the Marine Corps’ research into portable 3D printing labs. Now, a three-year Army program has resulted in a 3D printed barracks, also known […]

Chinese Bridge Sports New, Extra-Strength 3D Printed Railings

Chinese Bridge Sports New, Extra-Strength 3D Printed Railings

In the Chinese city of Nanjing, a well-traveled bridge was deemed unsafe – namely, its railings weren’t stable enough. According to Li Jin, Chairman of Nanjing Jiayi Precision Machinery Manufacturing Co., Ltd, replacing the railings using traditional means would have taken at least a month. If you’ve had to deal with bridge construction on any of […]

Filigreed Firewall is a Striking Example of What 3D Printers Can Create With Concrete

Concrete is always something I’ve thought of as functional, solid, and utilitarian, but never beautiful or artistic. You pour concrete, it hardens, and you have a good, sturdy wall or sidewalk that serves its purpose, but doesn’t possess any kind of character or uniqueness unless a few kids get there before it dries to leave […]

Researchers Win Swiss Technology Award for Work in 3D Printing and Reverse Engineering with Concrete

Researchers Win Swiss Technology Award for Work in 3D Printing and Reverse Engineering with Concrete

Reverse engineering is one of those methods that is fascinating to many because it means you have to think about a project—in reverse. Even if we have no idea how to do something like this, our brains immediately set to work trying to figure it out because it’s just fun to think about working from […]

Cazza Construction Technologies is Ready to Populate the World With 3D Printed Smart Cities

It won’t be long before the cities of the world begin to look very differently than we know them now. 3D printed houses and other buildings have gone from a distant fantasy to a reality seemingly overnight, and 3D printed construction technology is advancing at an almost dizzying pace. New companies – and new technologies […]

Dubai’s 3D Printed Office Building Officially Opened, Furnished By Bene

As 3D printing continues to spread throughout the world, no place seems to have harnessed the disruptive power of the emerging technology quite like Dubai, the city-state in the United Arab Emirates. They’ve recently implemented a multi-tiered strategy that will utilize 3D printing to enhance their construction sector, medical products, and consumer products. Some of that […]

Eco Concrete Creates This Amazing Bench Using Highcon Rapid Layer Manufacturing Technology

Concrete is one of the oldest methods of producing custom shaped stones or walkways, and it remains one of the most efficient and durable. The process has been used for thousands of years, and examples of early concrete structures have been discovered that date back to ancient Egypt, Greece and the Roman empire. While the […]

The Netherlands has been on the radar quite often lately within 3D printing, from cool 3D printed goods in the retail arena to an entirely 3D printed and recyclable building. And while we’ve seen an interest in concrete 3D printing from that area of the world and even the creation of a massive new concrete 3D […]

Chinese Construction Company 3D Prints an Entire Two-Story House On-Site in 45 Days

How long does it take to build a house? Obviously it depends on the size of the house and other factors, but somewhere around six or seven months is a good estimate. Chinese construction company HuaShang Tengda thinks that’s pretty funny, and have essentially laughed in the face of traditional construction by 3D printing a 400-square-meter, two-story […]

Now THIS is Upcycling: UCLA Researchers Capture Carbon Emissions & 3D Print Them Into New Material, CO2NCRETE

Often, it seems as if concrete is the glue that holds the world together under our busy feet, and wheels–from the smooth driveway you backed out of this morning with that first hot cup of coffee in hand–to the foundation underneath as you traversed the pathway into work. And that’s just a beginning. What about […]

"Fossilized" Project Takes a Creative but Practical Approach to Concrete 3D Printing

"Fossilized" Project Takes a Creative but Practical Approach to Concrete 3D Printing

Concrete is usually not a material that one associates with artistic expression. It’s a utilitarian material, meant to be poured and scraped, walked upon or leaned against. 3D printing, however, has revitalized concrete’s creative potential. Incredible shapes and textures have been created by artists armed with concrete and 3D printers, but the material’s functional attributes […]

Student-Built Concrete 3D Printer Gets an Upgrade and a New 10'x10'x10' Build Envelope

Concrete 3D printers are big business right now, with major companies in the US, China, the Netherlands and more investing in developing a large-scale machine capable of instantly fabricating large concrete structures and hopefully even an entire house. But big businesses aren’t the only ones looking into 3D printing with concrete; the maker community has also […]

Over the past couple of years, we have really begun to see 3D printing make its way into the construction industry. While the technology has proven itself in the fabrication of small buildings, we have yet to see 3D printed buildings actually be put to everyday use. We’ve seen Andrey Rudenko’s 3D printed castle, we’ve […]

Silky Concrete Project: Massive Concrete Installation Built by KUKA Robot & Ten 3D Printers

When I was a kid growing up in south Florida, artists abounded, but the idea–and acceptance factor–of the ‘art installation’ had yet to grow. Artists who were involved in alternative, experimental, and performance art were few and far between and considered to be pretty ‘out there.’ Artists simply weren’t able to take on complex technology or […]

We’ve seen some innovative work coming from out west, famous for its vast, open spaces where industrious and progressive makers and hackers often live off grid, artists gain organic inspiration from the deserts ruled by wildlife and mother nature, and students such as Alex Le Roux attend large universities offering progressive technology curriculums. Everyone knows […]
